A Downward Slope
Unemployment in the United States is at an all time high. Businesses are running out of money and people are just trying to get by during these difficult times.. The longer we are in quarantine because of the Coronavirus, the more the economic decline is going to increase. It has gotten so bad that unemployment benefits are now being effected. And New York State has just hit a critical point in this pandemic.
A few days ago, the New York unemployment system collapsed. The reason that this happened is because it receive a large surge in people attempting to claim unemployment. In a recent press conference, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had this to say on the matter.
“It’s unbelievable,” “One thousand people just to take the incoming unemployment calls. That’s how high the volume is and they still can’t keep up with the volume.”
New York currently has the highest number of Covid-19 Cases in the country at the moment. With unemployment rates and corona cases continuing to rise, this is a picture of what is to come if the pandemic continues. So please everyone, wear masks if you go outside and practice social distancing. The sooner we start doing these the soon we can get out of this mess.
